Kanye West’s controversial comments about slavery have cost him airtime on a hip-hop and R&B radio station in Detroit.

DJs BIGG and Shay Shay at Detroit’s 105.1 The Bounce announced Thursday that they would stop playing the rapper’s music and the rest of the station has agreed to follow suit.

“We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that ‘slavery was a choice,’” the pair said in a Facebook post. “We are over it. We don’t want to hear Kanye’s music, we don’t want to play Kanye on our show, we don’t want to talk about Kanye anymore.”

“So we are taking a stand and we aren’t playing his music anymore; we just are refusing to give him a platform,” they added. Their post included the hashtag #MuteKanye to their Facebook live post.

“We need a break,” Shay Shay from the ‘Morning Bounce’ program told the Detroit Free Press. “I think it’s a gut feeling of when we’ll be able to feel comfortable playing it again, when we’ll want to hear it again, and more importantly, when will our listeners want to hear it again.”

Once again, a case of liberals not practicing what they preach when it comes to free speech or the 1st Amendment.

Slavery was a “choice”, all right – except that “choice” was made by racist Democrats (the same party those DJs in Detroit now support) who saw fit to control people they felt were “beneath” them and who they did not give a choice – and those are the same attitudes the Democrats (and liberals in general) still have to this day, judging and valuing people based on race/skin color and treating them accordingly.

Kanye did not get the message, “He and all blacks are NOT allowed to leave the plantation.” They are given an illusion of freedom. The party that 85+%of black Americans vote for still enslaves blacks. Maybe not literally as it did 150+ years ago, but psychologically. The left headed by the Democrats will do all it can to keep blacks on the plantation and will try to dupe and/or round up all other non-white minorities, LGBT’s and even idiot feminists to join the blacks on said plantation of “The high bar of low expectations”.

Kanye is not fav of mine no rapper is and he is apart of the Kardashian riff raff, but he said it right, blacks today CHOOSE to be slaves. Slaves to the liberal/leftist ideology that they can’t get anywhere without sucking at the tit of government and the Democrats.

Kanye will be burned in effigy by blacks, and all liberals, self imposed racism by blacks and all minorities as well a disguised racism by the Democratic party.

Our own Liberal, NDP and now even Greens in Canada do and champion the same with our Aboriginals… Dupe them to suck at the tit of govt. while keeping them on the reserve so to speak IT’S RACIST AND IS DISGUSTING!

For any minority to fall prey to this type of crap is a fools folly.

First Amendment has no application here. His free speech rights have not been violated.

The Democrats and social activist groups in the USA, Liberals and NDP along with said social activist groups in Canada and most any western nations have done well to create the era of identity politics. They by FIAT and enacted laws created the different identity social/politics groups. They then use the power of government to promise to these groups/peoples the access to the proverbial gold ring. “Just let us show you or provide you the way to your utopia.” these liberal/leftist political parties say.

They then dangle the proverbial gold ring in front of any one or all of these identity groups with the promise of “Vote for us and you get the gold ring.” They know said promise will draw like moths to a flame many of these people based on identity and thus will secure a lot of votes.

BUT!…BUT! at the last moment as any of these groups of people find their own, reach out to grasp at the gold ring, the Democrats in the USA, Liberals, NDP in Canada pull this proverbial gold ring away and then hang in front of these people the brass ring all the while now saying, ” Hey you all should be happy for the brass ring, it’s better than nothing and more than the other party/side promised to give you.”

Sad that since the signing of the US Civil Rights Act in 1964 we have sen identity politics take firmly hold in the USA and similarly such in Canada and other nations and the very people these laws were said to help have actually hurt.

1962 the Black American single mother household rate was just 22% about the same as Whites, Hispanic/Latino and Asian households give or take a few percent.

1964 Civil Rights Act passes, creating entrenched identity politics in the USA.

1967 the Black American single mother household rate was now at 35% and rising. Whites and , Hispanic/Latinos and Asians saw a nominal rise of said rate due to weakening divorce laws and unfavorable to keeping the family together divorce courts.

2015 the Black American single mother household rate was now 72% and rising. Hispanic/Latino about 44% Whites about 25% and Asians about 19%.

The Democrats at city, state and Federal levels, I’l toss in a few RINO’s too though are near 100% responsible for the essential destruction of the Black American Family… Blacks still psychologically choose to be enslaved to an ideology peddled to them by the liberal Left.

Kanye appears to be wise enough to see it and call it out. For that he is roasted and vilified by liberals, leftists, social activists, the liberal MSM and sadly by many blacks who still choose to live on the plantation. 🙁

@ Zebb:

Your denials notwithstanding, it became a 1st Amendment issue when the Left went off the rails over Kanye’s comments and decided to punish and silence him for what he said. Claiming the “First Amendment has no application here” just because you say it doesn’t apply does not make what you say gospel.
